"They are sorry."

Translation:De er kede af det.

Why doesn't undskyld work?

"De er undskyld" would roughly translate to "They are excuse me". It just doesn't make sense in this context.

Is ked/kede ever used without the "af det"?

I think "they are sorry" is the wrong translation. See http://ordnet.dk/ddo/ordbog and enter "ked" There it says "ked af det" means "ulykkelig eller nedtrykt". So I think "They are unhappy" would be a better translation.
